What Does Rhino Shield Not Protect Against

Mulch and Bushes Against the Coating: Rhino Shield relies on proper airflow, as it is a breathable coating. Therefore, it’s crucial to avoid allowing mulch to accumulate against your walls or vegetation to grow too close, as this can impede necessary air circulation.

Standing Water: While Rhino Shield has been rigorously tested to endure wind-driven rain of up to 100 miles per hour, prolonged submersion in water is not recommended.

Roof and Gutter Leaks: Rhino Shield effectively safeguards your home from external elements. However, if there are leaks in your roof or gutter system, water intrusion into your soffit and fascia can result in internal wood damage.

Knots and Sap from Natural Wood Siding: While Rhino Shield strives to prevent knot holes and sap from bleeding through natural wood siding, it cannot guarantee complete elimination of this issue. As a vapor-permeable coating, Rhino Shield allows humidity to escape without compromising its integrity. However, in rare instances, some color bleeding may occur, staining the coating. Although this doesn’t affect the coating’s durability, it does not qualify as a warranty claim.

Carpenter Bees: Despite Rhino Shield’s robust thickness (8-10 mils), which is 6-8 times thicker than regular paint, carpenter bees can still find their way through its protective barrier. If you’re dealing with these persistent pests, our solution includes a chemical treatment for each hole and the application of a product called Viper to the coating. While this should address the immediate issue, it’s advisable to schedule periodic chemical treatments, particularly in the spring, to prevent future carpenter bee problems.

It’s important to note that Rhino Shield is not compatible with pressure-treated wood surfaces, such as decks or deck railings. If you have such areas in need of protection, alternative solutions may be necessary. However, our services can still accommodate cleaning and treatment for these areas, focusing primarily on applying Rhino Shield to the main sections of your home where its benefits are most impactful.
